DEADPOOL 2 Enlists JOHN WICK Composer Tyler Bates To Replace Junkie XL

It's been nearly a year since Junkie XL left the Deadpool sequel and it finally looks like director David Leitch has found his replacement in Guardians of the Galaxy and John Wick composer Tyler Bates!

Last year, following Tim Miller's shocking departure from the Deadpool sequel, composer Junkie XL (aka Tom Holkenborg) decided to also leave the project out of solidarity to Miller, which left the studio with a pretty big hole to fill, but luckily, they still had plenty of time to find the right man for the job.  

With the film exactly seven months out, Film Music Reporter has learned that 20th Century Fox has tapped Tyler Bates to score the highly anticipated sequel, a move that will reunite him with his John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch, who is helming Deadpool's second live-action outing. 

Ryan Reynolds is headlining the feature with a supporting cast that contains Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapičić, Jack Kesy, Karan Soni, and Shioli Kutsuna. Production recently wrapped with several members of the cast and crew sharing a series of photos.

Bates is also well-known for scoring Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for Marvel Studios and several Zack Snyder films, including 300, Watchmen, and Sucker Punch. His work can be heard next in the upcoming Netflix series Marvel's The Punisher.

Deadpool 2 is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool, distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is intended to be the twelfth installment in the X-Men film series, and a sequel to the 2016 film Deadpool.
